Re: Geer DNA Results for NC, TN and GA Geers

In Reply to: Re: Geer DNA Results for NC, TN and GA Geers by Samuel Taylor Geer of 1061

I don't know how recently the website listed in the previous message was updated, but the information for Sarah Reeves, wife of Frederick Geer as copied from the Reeves Review has been proven wrong by the Reeves DNA Project - http://freepages.genealogy.rootsweb.ancestry.com/~reevesdna/results.htm. A decendant of Sarah Reeves' father, William Reeves is participant #121975 in Group 6 and NOT descended from James Reeves and Milicent of Guilford NC. The family of James Reeves is Group 3 of the results. The identification of William Reeves wife as Fortune Rhodes is also incorrect and was based upon the compilers of the Reeves Review's incorrect assumption that William was from the Reeves' family of Guilford NC.

There are 60 years of historical data for William Reeves, father of Sarah Reeves Geer, in the extant records of Wake County, North Carolina.
